Heritage Owner-Occupied Rehab Programs

Helping existing residents with critical home repairs

Heritage Owner-Occupied Rehab (OOR) is a new affordable housing initiative to help current lower-income City of Atlanta residents remain in their homes and avoid displacement. Heritage OOR includes three programs offering residents forgivable loans to make critical health and safety repairs on their homes.  Senior households aged 55+, military veterans, disabled head of households, and those that have been in their homes for 15+ years will have priority in the programs.
